Days 2 thru 6: Thankfulness

Day 2:  I am thankful for FIELD TRIPS! :D  I love being able to take a day and spend individually with my kids.  On Friday, we drove to Little Rock and spent the day with Faith.  I have loved going to pumpkin patches, hiking, and to battlefields through the years with each of my kids.  That one-on-one time means a lot to me as well as them.

Day 3:  What a busy day!  I am thankful that we got the tile down today.  One step closer to having a kitchen again.   I used the wet saw for the first time and I did ALL of the cuts in the entire kitchen.  Looks pretty good too! ;) Cannot wait until the cabinets!

Day 4:  I am thankful for my kids.  It is true that time goes by too fast.  I look at my children and wonder how I can have a 15, 13, and 10 year old.  I'm not old enough, am I? ;D  I am thankful that I can still kiss them good-night and that God has given me another day to be their Momma.  They have made me a better person by having them in my life.  Being a mother has increased my faith through the many trials that have come our way.  I have learned that before they were mine, they were God's.  And, He has their life, as well as mine, in the palm of His hand.  That's a beautiful thing!!

Day 5:  I am thankful for my husband.  Through the past 15 years, he has done his best to support his family.  He has got second jobs when bills over-rided our income.  He has been in there working on my kitchen daily even before his real job starts in the afternoon.  He'll spend time picking out a six dollar Hallmark card for Mother's day to let me know what's inside his heart, even though I've told him for the last 15 years that's too much for a card! :)

Day 6:  Before my own kids, I was an Auntie.  I love being an aunt!  It's close to grandparent status where I can spoil and send home! ;D  I have three nieces and one nephew which I love so much.  It means so much to me that even as they have out grown my lap they still try sometimes.  And, they are always there with hugs, kisses, and "love you's".  They make my heart happy!
